Vintage Henry Starck Bagpipes 1900's
A vintage set of Henry Stark bagpipes. Condition is as shown (used, with the expected small chips and bumps from a century or so of use and cracking in several spots) plus the following. Chanter does have a barely visible maker's mark i. Barely able to make out "CK LON" and maybe "RO" underneath the "LO" - I will try to get some pics where this can be seen. Chanter and blow pipe stocks have a good bit of petrified electrical tape residue. Chanter stock has a good sized crack. Blowpipe ferrule is a replacement. Chipped ring top on one tenor drone. The original wooden case is included (names written in pencil on inner lid), as is the leather bag (intact and supple but needs cleaning), wool bag cover (has been dry cleaned), very ancient and fragile drone ribbons in poor shape and drone cords which were filthy and due to an ill-advised attempt at cleaning have been damaged and are included for reference. This set is from the estate of a family of Irish/English descent.
Please check the pics and if you need more, please ask for specific views you care to see. I will respond to any questions as best I can.
